XertifiX Germany coordinates the work of the Indian partner, motivated German stonemasons for sale of certified stones and makes consciousness forming public relations. The success can be seen in important structural changes. So the city of Munich has its cemetery statutes already amended so that only certified stones may be found on their cemeteries. It is hoped that also Baden-Württemberg cities follow suit … ”
